Truly one of the highlights of CMA week, Darius Rucker's fifth annual "Darius and Friends" benefit concert will be held Monday, June 2, at Nashville's Wildhorse Saloon. Those artists taking the stage for the sold-out event include Clint Black, Eli Young Band, David Nail, Cassadee Pope, Kenny Rogers, Corey Smith and Thompson Square. Proceeds from the concert will go directly to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
On June 3rd, the Darius and Friends Celebrity Golf Tournament will take place. Colt Ford, Scott Hamilton, JT Hodges, Randy Houser, Tommy John, Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley, Dustin Lynch, Derek Mason, David Nail, Jon Pardi, Eric Paslay, Keifer Thompson and more are set to participate.
Since its inception, "Darius and Friends" has raised more than $225,000 for St. Jude through the concert, golf tournament and auction.
"This is one of my favorite events every year and I'm so glad we're able to support St. Jude for the fifth year in a row," say the country hitmaker. "St. Jude does such amazing work for young cancer patients and their families, and I'm grateful to all my fellow artists and friends for coming together to have some fun and support such a great cause."
